CRYSTAL CITY, TX, Nov. 16, 2004 (PRNewswire-FirstCall) -- World Environmental Technologies Inc. (WET), a subsidiary of Ecoloclean Industries Inc., has entered into a contract with Delta D'Lo LLC to provide wastewater treatment services to work in conjunction with Delta's patent-pending membrane technology while utilizing WET's patented electrocoagulation process.

Delta, a wastewater treatment operator based in Broussard, Louisiana, has non- hazardous wastewater generated from its processing of oily wastewater that it receives from industrial sources. The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality ("LDEQ"), in conjunction with the Environmental Protection Agency, enforces regulations regarding discharged contaminates in waters in the State of Louisiana. Delta, not having a wastewater discharge permit, instigated a contract with WET in an effort to remain compliant with those regulations.

Ecoloclean Industries, Inc. is one of only three wastewater treatment companies to receive a Mobile Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit from the State of Louisiana. This permit affords Ecoloclean the opportunity, via its patented electrocoagulation system, to treat and remove pollutants and minerals from contaminated waters. After Ecoloclean's electrocoagulation units treat the contaminants, the water can be safely released back into the state waters.

According to the terms of the contract, WET will treat the wastewater generated from Delta's oil processing facility to meet discharge specifications of its mobile permit. WET will process the wastewater with its electrocoagulation system and biological treatment and filtration system to remove metals, dissolved organics, residual oil and grease, COD and other regulated parameters to levels that meet the discharge specifications and other regulated parameters to levels that meet the discharge specifications of the LDEQ. WET's Mobile Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit, along with their mobile electrocoagualtion units, allows WET to discharge the waste at Delta's Broussard facility. The contract also allows for additional waste streams, including waste streams with high solids, to be added at a later date, and as the need arises.

Royis Ward, President and CEO of Ecoloclean Industries, Inc. stated, "Delta and their Management Team has placed the utmost confidence in Ecoloclean's services over our competitors that have the same permit to operate in the State of Louisiana. The Louisiana Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit gives our clients the assurance that their discharged wastewater is compliant with state regulations, and our electrocoagulation units combine state of the art technology with cost- effective measures. This makes our services extremely appealing to our current and potential clients. We expect this contract with Delta to last at least one year, which will bring in a revenue stream and help bolster WET's reputation as a pioneering leader in the wastewater treatment industry."

Ecoloclean will continue to update the investment community as WET attains more contracts with companies seeking superior wastewater treatment.
